The US Fish and Wildlife Service yesterday proposed that the Oregon chub, a small minnow native to Oregons Willamette Valley, be removed from the endangered species list created by the 1973 US Endangered Species Act. The Oregon chub was placed on the endangered species in 1993 after the loss of floodplain habitats and predation by non-native fish. At the time, fewer than eight populations of Oregon chub existed, with fewer than 1,000 fish. Oregon chub numbers now exceed 150,000, in 80 different habitats around the Willamette area.
